the back up lamp switch is located on the transmission. there should be a plug that unplugs then the switch itself will thread out.

I have the same question (2001 ranger 5spd). Any chance someone knows if it's either the red plug in the upper left corner of the photo or the black one in the bottom right? Side note- the red one just plugs in and out (no thread) so maybe that's a clue?
